FORMS: with Brian Jack - Saturday April 27th 2019
A chance for experienced improvisers to learn a whole new set of improv formats from a world-class US teacher.
iO Chicago is known as the theatre that originated the Harold, a form emphasising themes, theatricality and group work. But it has also showcased other forms every great improviser should know. JTS Brown, Close Quarters, Living Room, The Bat, Armando, The Google, Detour, and Shotgun.
Learn the moves, openings and transitions from these forms. Make your improv shows look more exciting & interesting than your typical collection of talking head scenes and sweep edits. This fast paced workshop offers plenty of stage time and will help players develop their confidence to make big moves and take risks on stage.
Brian Jack has spent the past 20 years in Chicago and Los Angeles acting, writing, teaching and producing comedy. His tv credits includes Mad Men, Cougar Town, Fair Game. And he’s written for tv shows on networks like NBC, Comedy Central and AudienceNetwork. Brian honed his skills in Chicago at the Improv Olympic, Comedy Sportz, and Second City. He was also a cast member at Boom! Chicago in Amsterdam. Along the way Brian developed a passion for teaching improv to students and professionals from around the world.
